General description

5-Bromosalicylic acid is a salicylic acid derivative. Its bonding to viscose fabric can impart antibacterial properties to the fabric. It has been identified as one of the brominated disinfection byproduct (Br-DBP) formed during the chlorination of saline sewage effluents.


5-Bromosalicylic acid may be employed as a starting reagent for the synthesis of honokiol, a biphenyl-type neolignan.
